There are a lot of benefits to making one’s own cosmetic brews. Things like final rinses, whipped butter mixes, hair spritzes and even homemade hair conditioners can be made fresh and used on the spot. There is something really refreshing about feeling that your skin/hair/face needs a pick-me-up, opening your refrigerator and checking to see what raw materials you have for whisking up a potion that will do the job.
While I still advocate the use of some store-bought products alongside these home-made brews, being able to whip something up can save you a bit of money, give you absolute control over what is being applied to your skin as well as give you a better understanding of how store bought products work.
I am determined to make you all mixtresses ;), so expect a bit more on this topic soon.
